SOURCE: How can I open back panel on Kenmore Ultra Fabric Washer

On this design, the front would be the area you would need to remove. Start by unplugging the machine. On the console, you will see 2 screws on either side of the front of the console. Remove these 2 screws with a phillips screwdriver. After you do this, grasp the console on either side, gently pull the front bottom out, then when it releases, flip the console up, and swing it back over the rear of the unit. On either side of the top, you will see a gold latch. Put a regular screwdriver in the groove along the front of these latches, down in the hole in the top, and pop it out. Do this to the other side as well. Grab the cabinet, and gently swing the top back towards you until the bottom slides out. Then set the cabinet aside. On this model, there are no belts. The drive system is made up of a motor, a drive coupler, and transmission. The drive coupler is between the transmission and motor. Sounds like you may have a problem with the basket drive system, which is located between the transmission and outer tub. This can be replaced, but will take a special spanner nut wrench to remove the inner basket and drive block. Let me know if this helps you out some or need me to break it down a little more for you. Good Luck!!! Jimster

SOURCE: Kenmore Washer: Noisy Spin Cycle

if this sound is similar to a jet engine then it may be best to get a quote from your local repair man to see if repairing the unit will be worth it. there are a lot of steps in fixing this problem and you may be able to do this yourself but it is pretty difficult.
sound like you need a new rear bearing and a spin support shaft

take the front bottom panel off. inside there is a drain pump. you need to remove filter from drain pump its look like a knob. be careful because their is water inside your drain pump so use some big thing for water. clean your filter. put filter back tight. i hope will solve your problem.

SOURCE: there is power to the washer, water will drain

Try unplugging machine for 30 seconds then plug back in then lift and close the lid 5 times which will reset the motor. Try the spin cycle if it works you may have had a power surge which took the motor out and just needed reset. If it fails you may have a bad inline fuse or motor.

Kenmore washer Model 110, Serial No. 27602690 won't spin


If wash cycle operates and water drains as should before spin indicates motor spinning. Chances are bad timer If your a real fixer you can remove timer control from panel check and clean all contacts internally making sure none are stuck closed . (Have had 3 110s in my time).not easy but can be done or buy new about 150$ reassemble and check operation.

It sounds like the transmission is done. Can't pinpoint what it is exactly, but I would start there.

Kenmore 80 didn't drain during the spin cycle and leak underneath machine. Makes buzzing noise in the wash cycles.


The pump is likely damaged if it was leaking. Look for a ring of melted plastic on the face side of the pump. Check to make sure the hole is not rounded where the motor shaft enters the pump.
I'd replace the pump just to make sure the washer doesn't flood some time in the future even if the pump turn out to be ok now.
